IOS 12iOS 12: Top 5 new features: Hey, today we came with our new post which is iOS 12: Top 5 new features. Apple recently annnoucned and released new iOS 12 in iphone x which has some new features. In this post we discussed these new features of iOS 12.

So, here are the iOS 12: Top 5 new features:

Animoji

Animoji

It’s somehow one of the biggest headlining features of the iPhone 10 and as far as I know it’s still just for iPhone 10 but animoji has had a lot added to it. There’s no new animoji: there’s a koala, a tiger, a t-rex and there’s a ghost and also there’s now there’s tongues for all of them there’s tongue detection kind of like snapchat has had for a while including the skull everyone gets a tongue so cool and then there’s me emoji which will let you create any number of your own an emoji to look exactly the way you want.

Grouped notification Grouped Notifications

Finally as an Android user, your all notifications from one app get grouped together and it looks pretty, neat and organized. Then you can tap to expand and view all of them and then you can act on each one of them one by one. If you want and when you’re done either at the top or the bottom of the list, you can collapse them back into. It’s been working pretty well. 

Screen time

Screen time

It is something similar to this at Google i/o where it’s just basically directly addressing how you use your phone or how much you use your phone and possibly whether or not you’re addicted to it and cutting down that addiction. But it’s actually really interesting; it shows you what you’ve used most on your phone in the last couple hours. The screen has been on and then it lets you set limits for certain apps. So, if you want to make sure you only spend one hour on Instagram, you can tell it to do that and then when you try to open the app after that hours up, it doesn’t let you in unless you click the button that lets you in. It also shows you a really detailed breakdown of your most used apps. How many times you pick up the phone during the day the average per hour and which apps send you the most notifications.

Siri shortcuts

Siri shortcuts

Now to be honest we were looking forward to some major improvements with Siri mainly making it not bad but this is something interesting. Essentially it’ll allow you to map any in-app action or any command to any phrase you want. So, they don’t have the actual shortcuts app yet which will allow you to build as many of these as you want but if you go in the settings for Siri there’s a couple that are built in it kind of demonstrate how this works.

New apps

New apps on ios12

In a lot of the stock apps, now they are overhauled they look drastically different and there’s actually one new app: the iBooks app is now Apple books and is supporting a new design. It’s supposed to be minimally distracting the news app is redesigned this one with a more modern UI and a stocks app is redesigned with this slick user interface with Apple.

Stocks voice memos also got an update and new logo as well. But there’s actually the new app in iOS 12 which is called the measure app and this is an AR kit 2.0 app. So it’s an augmented reality app that lets you literally look through the camera pointed at objects and measure them and measure how long or how tall or how much volume they have. It’s actually pretty quality, the only limitation seems to be that it’s definitely better with smaller objects and with things that are closer to you but its definitely accurate but there you have it there’s some good stuff in iOS 12 this time. Another app is Group FaceTime, you can now do a FaceTime group call with up to 32 people. One main thing is that if you do this with someone on iOS 11, it kicks them out of the FaceTime call. The improvement to search in photos is much more robust to the point where they’ve put a search button right there in the bottom of the app encouraging you to use it. Now you can swipe in iphone 10 to kill apps right away you don’t have to hold down and wait for the little red minus sign to pop up anymore. That’s massively more convenient.

Thank You Apple so that’s iOS 12 that’s where we’re at right now.
